2:00 am
but it is early in the trading day. we'll keep an eye on whether this will continue being a disaster for the uk and for global markets or whether the sounds of screaming icelandic announcers will start to scream. we'll see. watch this. we'll see. watch this space. "first look" is up next. it's tuesday, june 28th. right now on "first look," two of the most powerful rising democrats in the country team up against donald trump. >> you want to see goofy? look at him in that hat. watch out, because he will crush you into the dirt to get whatever he wants. >> but that's just the beginning. a massive $15 billion settlement involving widespread polluting and a major buyback for volkswagon. abortion and gun control. major rulings by the supreme court that had the nation talking. plus after three deaths, ikea recalls 29 million chests and dressers that can tip over onto children. the best and worst places for you to retire. and jay leno gets the ride
2:01 am
of his life and much more than he bargained for. "first look" starts right now. good morning to you and thanks for joining us today. i'm betty nguyen. presumptive democratic nominee hillary clinton and elizabeth warren were already looking like a unified presidential ticket. clinton was laying out her strategy for the future and warren was doing what she does better almost than anyone else and that is attacking donald trump. >> donald trump cheered on britain's current crisis, which has sucked billions of dollars out of your retirement accounts because he said hey, it might bring more rich people to his new golf course. what kind of a man roots for people to lose their jobs, to lose their homes, to lose their life savings? i'll tell you what kind of a man. a small insecure money grubber who fights for no one but himself. >> as for clinton, well, she seemed to enjoy warren's attack. >> i do just love to see how she
2:02 am
gets under donald trump's thin skin. she exposes him for what he is. temperamently unfit and totally unqualified to be president of the united states. >> the trump campaign yesterday a tempered statement that called warren a sellout and said, quote, her campaigning for clinton stands in stark contrast to the liberal ideals she once practiced. this sad attempt at pandering to the sanders wing is another example of a typical political calculation by d.c. insiders. but it was after that statement that trump stepped up the rhetoric, going after warren in an exclusive phone call with nbc's hallie jackson. he told nbc, quote, i hope that she's selected as the vice presidential running mate. i will speak very openly about her if she is. she is one of the least productive senators in the united states senate. we call her pocahontas for a reason. adding she used the fact that she was native american to
2:03 am
advance her career. elizabeth warren is a total fraud. i know it. she made up her heritage which i think is racist. i think she's a racist, actually, because what she did was very racist. now when asked by nbc if his comments on warren might undermine his latest campaign makeover trump said quote, i don't care. i do me. i do what i do. i've listened to this for a long time at the beginning of the primaries. he should do this. he should do that. i won in a landslide. the latest nbc news/"wall street journal" poll shows a majority of republicans, 52%, still say they prefer someone else as their presidential nominee, versus 45% who say they're satisfied with trump. and during a republican national committee sponsored phone call with reporters yesterday, former massachusetts senator scott brown, who lost his re-election to warren, continued the same attacks trump used. >> we all know she's not native american. she's not 1/32nd. she has no native american background except for what her family told her.
2:04 am
the easy answer on that as you all know is that harvard and penn can release the records. she can authorize the release of those records. she can take a dna test. >> today, trump is expected to talk trade and domestic economy in pennsylvania while clinton is scheduled to lay out her technology and innovation agenda in denver. parents, listen up, ikea has issued a major recall on furniture that could endanger the lives of small children. the swedish retail giant is recalling 29 million chest and dressers including its mom series due to the risk of tipping over onto children. the furniture has been linked to the deaths of three children. it's no longer sold in stores, and ikea is offering a refund, or a free repair kit to anchor it to a wall. according to the consumer product safety commission, every 24 minutes, a child is injured from falling furniture. and every two weeks a child dies. the supreme court issues the
2:05 am
most significant ruling on the country's abortion laws in over 20 years. a 5-3 court struck down a texas abortion law. advocates say would have shuttered all but a handful of clinics in the state. the majority on the court said the texas law imposes obstacles on a woman's right to access an abortion without any medical benefit. the law said abortion clinics must meet the same medical construction standards as walk-in surgical centers. but the court said that makes no sense for the large number of women whose abortions require taking only pills, not surgery. former texas senator winnie davis who led a famous 13-hour filibuster against the texas law praised the court's decision tweeting quote, today made that day three years ago all worth it. so grateful to all the women who shared their stories. and that wasn't the only major decision out of the supreme court. they also upheld a u.s. gun law that bars people with misdemeanor domestic violence convictions from owning a gun. the case involved two maine men
2:06 am
who said their guilty pleas for hitting their partners should not have disqualified them from owning a gun. that case was also passed by a 5-3 margin. a man in china is alive today, thanks to a quick action several of them, in fact, by some heroic bystanders. look at this. surveillance video captured the moment a driverless runaway car toppled a 52-year-old man while he was relaxing in a chain. a passerby saw this accident and then shouted for help and that prompted a group of drivers and pedestrians to band together. clearly there was strength in numbers because they successfully lifted the car and rescued the man. he was immediately sent to the hospital. and is now recovering in stable condition. lucky guy. all right so jay leno had some scary moments while filming a segment for his cbs show "jay leno's garage."
2:07 am
holy cow! well leno and the driver were both fine thankfully after that crash. they even joked about saying it doesn't get any more exciting than that. that's an understatement. the car, a 2500 horsepower heavily modified plymouth barracuda is supposed to pop up on two wheels but instead it flipped over. it's been on his bucket list to ride in that car, but not in that fashion. wow, definitely not what he bargained for. let's get down to business with cnbc's landon dowdy. you know, wall street took a bit of a tumble this week, as well. >> talk about a wild ride. we've been on one as well here on wall street, too. the market also try to call back some of the losses created by the brexit blues the past two days. europe and asia are both in the green today. stocks were slammed again on monday, though, on uncertainty
2:08 am
as the uk votes to leave the european union. the dow falling 871 points, betty, in the past two sessions. that is the worst two-day drop since last august. the global markets have lost $3 trillion in value since friday. that is the worst loss ever. meanwhile, switching gears. volkswagen is expected to file an agreement in court today settling claims over its diesel emissions scandal, expected to include $10 billion to buy back or repair 475,000 cars or up to $10,000 per vehicle. vw will also pay $7 billion in fines. and this is an interesting one. a new study finds that more than half of americans are wasting their vacation days, can you believe it. research shows that people didn't use a total of 658 million days last year. more than a third say they're returning to a mountain of work is the top reason for not using vacation days. >> i don't know. i still don't understand that. >> i still got to take them. >> if you don't want to use it, just give it to us. >> i'm with you. >> thank you. straight ahead, did england

here's your first look at tuesday's "scrambled politics." house democrats cleared hillary clinton of any responsibility over the september 11th attack
2:20 am
on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. that attack left four americans, including ambassador christopher stevens dead. a report from republicans on the committee is expected later this morning. in a statement a spokesperson for the republicans on the panel said quote benghazi committee democrats obsession with the former secretary of state is on full display. everyone can ignore the rehashed partisan talking points defending their endorsed candidate for president. benghazi committee chairman trey gowdy will join andrea mitchell today at noon following the release of his report. ohio governor john kasich doesn't plan to speak at the republican national convention being held in cleveland. kasich's adviser john weaver said in a statement, quote, we have not asked for a speaking slot and have zero expectations of receiving one. now that comes as politico reports on how little interest there is among republicans to speak at this year's convention. after contacting more than 50 prominent governors, senators, and house members to gauge their interest in speaking, only a handful said they were open to it. senator ted cruz told nbc's exactlyly o'donnell that, quote,
2:21 am
time will tell if he will speak at the convention. president obama teamed up with buzzfeed and turbo vote to launch turn up to vote. it's a week-long initiative to encourage young voters to get involved and register to vote. the series kicked off today with a video starring president obama called five things that are harder than registering to vote. >> all right. we got -- that stuff's hard. but you know what isn't? registering to vote. >> and there you have it. that's your morning dish of "scrambled politics." 21 minutes past the hour. political analyst and cheerios challenge champion, ellis henican is here. good morning to you. >> makes me hungry. i'm sorry.
2:22 am
>> well you know, hillary clinton and senator elizabeth warren, they campaigned together on monday. >> yes. >> is an all-female ticket likely? >> why not? i mean, men have been screwing up stuff for years, right? is it likely? probably it won't happen. but you know what? i got to tell you, they both looked great there in their blue, enthusiasm, and i don't know, i got to say, i thought they had some -- i thought they had some chem in cincinnati. >> what's the purpose of this then? is that to test the waters? to really attack donald trump? what are they going after? >> well, yes, both of those, plus let me add one other. she just turned out to be a very, very good surrogate, right? she's been out there just slugging away and you know maybe they really are trying to figure out whether this is going to work. if it brings in a few of those bernie sanders progressives, all the better. >> that's what they want. but will voters be suspect of warren given that, you know, she was a one-time clinton critic, but now she's assumed this new
2:23 am
role as this being dubbed trump slayer is her new title, if you will. >> yeah. it's a fair question. but this year it seems like everybody in politics has said something horrible about somebody and then had to eat their words, and come back around eventually. boy look at the 16 other people who ran for republican nomination. they all had horrible things -- >> you're saying it doesn't matter anymore what you said in the past? >> i don't think there's much of a penalty anymore. it used to be oh, my god they're going to play that back in a commercial and you'll never get away with it. 2016, they say, eh, yeah. >> all the rules out the window. >> big deal. >> donald trump was quick to really call warren out on that saying that she was a sellout, she's a turncoat. will that tactic discredit the clinton/warren strategy here? >> you know, it's interesting. i think the office is going to happen. i think that elizabeth warren does have a way as hillary clinton did it yesterday, getting under donald's skin. any time the other side's nominee is attacking the potential vice president on your side, you're winning.
2:24 am
because you know what? it's a whole lot better to attack up than down and i think she's pulled donald into that. >> so you say she lives up to that trump slayer name that she's been given? >> you know what? i would say it was a very good initial dual performance in cincy yesterday. keep your eyes on her. >> thank you. just ahead a tourist at the lincoln memorial wows the crowd with an impromptu performance of the national anthem. it is must-see television. stay tuned. real is making new friends. amazing is getting this close. real is an animal rescue. amazing is over twenty-seven thousand of them. theris only one place where real a amazing live. seaworld. real. amazing when you have type 2 diabetes, like me, hii'm dominique wilkins. there's a moment of truth.
